Guys,

I am happy to report that I finally got the rear bags installed. It moves very quickly. At 250, it chips the tires off the ground about 2 or 2 1/2 inches. Pretty fun! :cool:

Still have to weld the brackets in place. I don't like the way they slap in place when you lock it up. The bags appear to sit on the rear axel when I lay the car. Other than that, no clearance issues.

just a little tip with bags use a rule of thumb "try to keep a thumbs worth of clearance between the bag and everything else"
halla,
Jason

Will post some pice in a few days. I don't want to hit it too hard until I get those brackets welded in. Not trying to break it before I get to enjoy it. Although, I am happy to report that I scared the shit out of an old lady at a stop light. She about shit herself.

My rear brackets top and bottom are held to the frame and trailing arms with 1/2" threaded rod.
I suppose that would work too. I just figured that a couple of tacks would be stronger, quicker, and easier. Should be a big deal to remove as long as I am smart about where I put the welds.

nice to hear the rear is done. is the front done also?
Nope. I ran out of funds and winter is soon approaching. I am gonna get the front done this winter. I am going to have Dan extend my a-arms and I am gonna rebuild the front-end and run Slam ES-62's, so it is gonna cost me somewhere near $500 to get it done right.

I am copying this post, so that it can be entered into evidence at my motor vehicle homicide case, caused by the front of my car falling apart.

Make sure to use wood glue between each layer!
jIFF CHUNKY PEANNUT BUTTER.

SEE, THIS IS WHY i'M DOING THE ARMS AND NOT YOU.

ANY FABRICATOR KNOWS THAT WOOD GLUE DOESNT ADHERE PROPERLY TO THE TIN FOIL DUE TO THE MOLECULAR INCONTINENCE OF THE SUBSTRATED SUBSTRATES, ESPECIALLY WHEN COMPARED TO THE MODULUS READING OF THE GALACTOMETER AND APPLIED USING THE BASIS SET FORTH IN COFTERSATERDS THEROM :uh:
